Science of compression bandage by Bipin Kumar, Apurba Das, R Alagirusamy

By Bipin Kumar, Apurba Das, R Alagirusamy

Compression therapy for power venous ailments is linked to quite a lot of demanding situations and sometimes produces doubtful medical results. Investigating and exploiting the functionality of compression bandage might extra increase the information of compression administration and could provide a holistic photograph of this promising region. This booklet discusses the basics of compression remedy i.e. compression or strain via multi-disciplinary ways related to a number of ideas of physics, organic technological know-how, biomaterials, textile engineering, structural dynamics, fabric technological know-how, technical textiles and instrumentation to higher take care of compression bandaging from diverse views.

Sample text

However, it is generally considered that a pressure between 30 and 50 mmHg at the ankle will ensure reduction of venous hypertension without causing undue discomfort to the patient or damage to the skin. A range of different bandages that are being used for compression therapy are available today, differing in terms of the fabric used, extensibility, stiffness and the way they are manufactured. The present chapter reviewed the different types of compression bandage, their classification and characterization, and recent works or progress in the field of compression bandage, which would expose the reader to new ideas and perspectives towards an effective treatment.

Compression bandage should produce gradient pressure from foot to knee to propel blood towards heart (Fig. 1b). When a nurse applies a bandage, the patient’s legs should be put at the same level, so that pressures in legs are almost same. 1 (a) Changes of ankle pressure, (b) pressure gradient due to compression But if improper and widely varying pressure is applied by inexperienced doctor or nurse, condition of patient may become adverse to the further treatment with this therapy; worse still may lead to amputation.
